Mauricio Zacharias

“If you’re working for a studio as a writer, you usually have to respond to an array of different opinions on your script, and because there’s so much money involved, the bottom line has to be commercial success. The problem is that nobody really knows how audiences will react to a film that’s still on the paper… When you’re writing an independent film, there’s one voice you need to listen to, and that’s the director’s. It’s one vision. Hopefully you’ll agree with that vision — otherwise, don’t take the job! — and that makes the whole process less painful.”
